African National Congress (ANC) National Chairperson Gwede Mantashe has received a hostile reception from some residents of Kathu in the Northern Cape where he is on an election campaign trail.

Poor roads, water problems and a lack of electricity are some complaints that some residents of Kathu raised with Mantashe. They also complained about their Ward Councillor who they accuse of not doing anything for them.

Some residents feel that the ANC has failed them while Mantashe tried to convince them that the party was willing to listen to them. “I have always been a loyal voter of the ANC but for the past few years there are certain things I am worried about that make me doubt the ANC,” says one of residents.

Another resident says; “We struggle with water and electricity but we will never stop voting for the ANC.”
